I donate 10% of royalties to charity each year, as many of you know. Because of the terrible fires devastating California, I will be sending some of the donations to organizations helping during this tragedy. Here is one of the organizations. I hope you will consider helping out in any way you can:
A reader wrote a review of the Pajaro Bay books some time ago, and her words have always stuck with me. She said that in each Pajaro Bay novel, a person comes to the village and is somehow healed by being there.
That has never been more true than in Sunshine Cottage. I have never written about a heroine who is more in need of healing and redemption than Teresa Soto.
This young woman has never had a break in her life. She is an afterthought, a discard, a person only used by her own family to make money for them. She has lost the most valuable thing a human being can possess: hope.
But then she meets a world-weary cop. She says of him: “Though he had lived twice as long as she had, he hadn’t given up on the idea there was something better than this.” And in this young woman, the cop sees not only a person who deserves a second chance, but perhaps the daughter he never had. So he offers her a helping hand—and a ticket to Pajaro Bay.
What will this cynical, unbelieving girl think when she lands in the postcard-perfect little village with its quirky characters—and a prince charming out of a fairy tale? Will she become a part of the community, and build a new life for herself?
(Big spoiler: it’s Pajaro Bay—of course she will! But there will be a lot of danger along the way. The bad stuff she’s trying to escape isn’t going to let go that easily.)
I hope you enjoy following along on Teresa’s journey, and, in a time when our own world can sometimes feel as hard and cynical as hers, you also find a feeling of renewal and happiness in this little visit to the world of Pajaro Bay.

A tale of silk, sorcery, and romance….
Ten years ago she was Lark, the tiny slave girl who witnessed the massacre of the royal family. Now she is Lark y Ariane, the most powerful—and hated—of the Silver Isle’s magical warriors, whose skill with sword and sorcery make her unbeatable in battle.
Ten years ago he was Raven yr Griffin, the idealistic boy prince who became a hero to the poor when he championed their secret religion of equality and peace over the nobles’ faith in wealth and power. Now he is Raven the Innkeeper, a bitter and crippled young man who believes in nothing, and wants only to be left alone.
When they meet, the Silver Isle will be changed forever.
